Our group of three families arrived at the hotel in the wee hours of the morning due to a series of flight delays. What we found was very disappointing. After struggling to find any parking, we discovered that the young man behind the desk had resold one of our three rooms, one that had been reserved with a credit card!... More

Spartan at best with single pane windows and no insulation btw rooms made very noisy and unpleasant. The "Continental Breakfast" was so funny that it provided the only moment levity in an otherwise grim experience. It consisted of a loaf of Wonder Bread, a toaster and tower of some cereal flakes.

MY wife and I checkec in very late on the night of July 9th, 2014. The check in experience was just fine as was the room. The next morning our check out was typical and the young man who had been there all night was friendly and courtious. My problem comes with the next desk clerk that came into the... More

I chose this hotel because of the location and free parking. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the street noise didn't really bother us. I had a party of five and only two towels were provided for our double queen room. There is only one ice machine for all three floors of this hotel and it was... More

For a gateway to the airport they don't have scales. The elevator broke in the middle of the night and it would have been ok if I didn't have two heavy pieces of lugguge on the third floor and shuttle to the airport in 10 minutes.

In most other aspects the hotel was satisfactory. Clean, decently decorated, and nice staff for a 2 star hotel. However, being in room 207 and in very close proximity to El Camino Real road; I received little sleep at night. There appeared to be little to no sound insulation on the windows or wall. I heard every vehicle that passed,... More

I stayed there the night before taking my flight back home. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the desk staff is very helpful. I had an issue with my flight reservation and they let me use the reception's phone to deal with my issue, which I appreciated. The airport shuttle service is efficient as well. You can call them...

Stayed here for 3 nights, as a medical licensing test centre was nearby. Definitely not the worst place I've been! It was clean, well-priced, and in a relatively good location. The shuttle pickup was efficient, and the room was big with a fridge and microwave. It's a 15 minute walk to the BART station. Once on the BART it is... More

Stayed for 3 nights. All in all a nice place to stay but there is nothing to do in the area in forms of entertainment. No Pool. No fitness area. They do provide continental breakfast of the limited variety. Small place in quiet neighborhood on a main street. Very close to airport. Choose this location for that reason and that... More

I stayed here a while back following my arrival in San Fran late at night (1am) on a flight from the east coast. The location is convenient, only a short but expensive cab ride (20 bucks for an 8 minute ride) from SFO. The night clerk was very helpful, and when I got to my room the TV wasnt working... More
